Umbria - Perugia - CITTA' DELLA PIEVE


RECEPTIVE STRUCTURE. Il Poggio alle Trese will enchant you with its beauty, a jewel resting gently on the hills between the medieval borghi of Città della Pieve, in fascinating Umbria, and Chiusi, in evocativeTuscany. Its secluded and quiet location enjoys an exceptional view over the immense green plain that stretches to the horizon. The farmhouse, inherited and handed down through generations since 1500, has undergone skilful restoration. The owners, attentive custodians of its authenticity, completed the work in 2010, transforming the home in a location that masterfully combines elegance and history. The antique façade, the exposed beams and the pink Tuscan terracotta of the floors give the structure a unique character. The spacious and welcoming areas of the house are tastefully furnished, combining traditional antique furniture with modern accessories. The well-kept garden, surrounded by olive groves, is home to numerous plants, tall trees, flowers typical of the area, a green lawn and, on a slightly lower terrace, the beautiful private swimming pool. Immersed in this breathtaking scenery, you can enjoy an apéritif in the pool area or dine under the romantic pergola adjacent to the house, an unforgettable experience made even more magical at sunset with the view over the wonderful surrounding panorama. A few minutes' drive away is Città della Pieve, a charming town which, in August, becomes the scene of the folkloristic "Palio dei Terzieri", an archery competition that re-enacts, in bloodless form, the old "Sienese hunts" and is preceded by a procession of over 700 participants dressed in heavy medieval costumes. So, not only Umbria but also Tuscany and, particularly, the province of Siena, have influenced this place which, given its proximity to motorways and railway stations, will prove to be the ideal base for travelling through the two regions and visiting places like Rome, Perugia, Orvieto, Assisi, Cortona, Montepulciano, Arezzo and many more. Shops and supermarkets can be found in Po' Bandino, just two kilometres away. Please Note: when the property is rented in this solution no other guests will be present on site.



The house has three floors, for a total area of about 400 sq m. The ground floor is divided into two wings that do not communicate internally. On the first floor, however, the two wings are connected by a passage and also by two internal staircases: one leading to wing No. 1 and the other to wing No. 2; the first floor is also accessible by an external stone staircase. The main entrance of wing No. 1 leads to the ground floor, consisting of an open-plan living area with dining room and sitting room equipped with a sofas and fireplace, and with direct exit through French windows. A small passage room leads to a spacious built-in kitchen with fireplace (ornamental) and French window. Completing the ground floor of wing No. 1 is a guest bathroom and a brick staircase leading up to the first floor. The main entrance of wing No. 2 leads to the ground floor, consisting of an open-plan sitting room with fireplace and dining area, followed by a large kitchenette equipped with fireplace (ornamental), washing machine and dryer. From here, a French window leads out to the pergola set up for outdoor dining. Up 3 steps is a guest bathroom with adjacent staircase leading up to the first floor composed of a sitting room with sofas, armchairs, smart TV and fireplace (ornamental), three double bedrooms with ensuite bathroom (two with tub and one with shower), two double bedrooms (one with divisible bed), each with adjacent bathroom with shower. On the second floor, accessible up a 15-step wooden staircase, is a characteristic sitting room with sofas.


The property stands on a hill about 350 metres above sea level. Once past the manually-opening iron gate, a driveway flanked by an imposing row of cypresses leads to the large, 5-car uncovered parking area. From here a well-kept garden is revealed, extending over 1.5 hectares, with a carpet of lawn dotted with cypresses and a variety of tall trees. The landscaped garden is enlivened by rose bushes, wisteria, neat hedges, potted lemons, aromatic herbs and a vast grove enriched by oaks, holm oaks and linden trees. In this quiet setting, surrounded by centuries-old olive groves, are areas set up to fully enjoy the outdoors. The pergola, adjacent to the entrance to the house, is the ideal place for convivial moments, complete with table and chairs for outdoor dining, with (down 6 steps) a stone barbecue covered by a canopy. Equally appealing is the large, paved pergola, complete with table and chairs and covered with fragrant wisteria, located on a lower terrace at the back of the house and reached down a flight of 19 steps. Please notice that photos are taken in spring, therefore flower blossoming, and the colours of the gardens' grass could be different at the moment of your arrival at the villa.

Swimming Pool:

The splendid swimming pool, for exclusive use, is located about 20 m away, at a slightly lower level than the house and accessible down a flight of 7 steps or across a stretch of lawn. Rectangular and measuring 11 x 5.5 m, with a constant depth of 1.50 m, the pool is lined in sand-coloured PVC with a stone border and has internal spotlights, a chlorine-based purification system amd a metal ladder for access to the water. The inviting lawn solarium surrounding the pool is equipped with sunbeds, deckchairs, an umbrella and a pergola covered with climbing roses. The swimming pool is open from the last Saturday in April until the first Saturday in October.

Location and distances

Thanks to its perfect location, in an area between the lush region of Umbria and fascinating Tuscany, the property is an ideal starting point for exploring the most important historical and cultural centres of the two regions. Il Poggio alle Trese is just a few kilometres from Città della Pieve, a pretty medieval borgo considered amongst the most beautiful in Italy, a cultural and tourist centre, renowned for being the birthplace of Pietro Vannucci, known as "Il Perugino". Five kilometres away is Chiusi, an ancient settlement of which the earliest evidence dates back to the 2nd millennium BC. when the first villages of farmers and shepherds appeared and which would become one of the most important and powerful cities of northern Etruria, a past which today lives on in the National Etruscan Museum which, housed in a neoclassical-style building, preserves extremely rare artifacts. In addition to services, restaurants, shops and supermarkets, the town has a railway station with trains for Rome, Florence and other major centres, while just 5 minutes away is the Chiusi-Chianciano exit of the Autostrada del Sole. With these means of transport, you will be able to travel along the famous itineraries that run through southern Tuscany and Umbria, to cities of art, spa resorts, natural beauty and food and wine routes: Siena, Cortona, Perugia, Orvieto for history and culture enthusiasts; Val di Chiana, Monte Amiata, Lake Trasimeno and Val d'Orcia, a UNESCO world heritage site, for excursionists and fans of outdoor sports and photography; Sarteano, Cetona, Città della Pieve and Montepulciano for those seeking typical products and cuisine; San Casciano dei Bagni and Chianciano Terme for relaxing thermal waters and wellness centres.
